The grand jury has decided that no one should be indicted in connection with the death of a woman found dead inside a Waller County jail cell over the summer, a special prosecutor for the case tells Eyewitness News.

From the officers to jailers inside the Waller County Jail, no one will face criminal charges in the case. The prosecutor says grand jurors will reconvene January 6 to discuss other, misdemeanor matters related to the case.

The grand jury will reconvene in January to consider other indictments, KPRC reported.
